Who We Are

High School graduates and returning students, receiving scholarships for their continuing education on Youth Sunday, June 9th 2019

“We are a diverse group of individuals from every age group: young, middle aged and seasoned. We’re partnered and single, LGBTQ and straight. There are those who were born in the USA and those who are immigrants. Our parents, grandparents and great grandparents came from every part of the world. There are those whose home has always been Quincy, and those who have lived in places far and wide.

“We have members who have belonged to this one local church their whole lives. There are others who have been with us just a few months. And there are those who decided to try this thing called church and are still figuring it out.

“There are those who knew their need for a place of community and gathering and took the step of walking in the door one Sunday. There are those who join us for worship occasionally. And there are those who love to participate in every event.

“Our common denominator is a desire to find our place in the expansive love of God, and to share that love, made known in Jesus Christ, in this community and in the world beyond. At Wollaston Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, we strive to welcome everyone, no matter who they are, where they have come from, and where they are on life’s journey.”

Youth from Glastonbury, CT enjoying the hospitality at Wollaston Congregational Church during their week of service in Boston

We have a special ministry, hosting youth groups from around the United States, who travel into the city of Boston to serve those in need. We are grateful to the Massachusetts Department of Public Safety, who recently granted us permission to continue hosting youth groups.

At this time we are actively welcoming new members.

What people are saying …

Becky: I come to church to step out of the intense focus of the work week full of me and mine to find some quiet, some redirecting, some refreshment. I bring my stress and let it melt out of me with the melody and words during the music and prayers of the service.

Owen: When it came time to pick my Eagle Scout project, I knew where I wanted to do it. I wanted my project to benefit the church which had given me so much and had been such an important part of my childhood. When I finished my project I was very proud of it, because I had helped make the church a more beautiful and better place.

John:  My church offers me a fellowship to share communion, to sing praises and lift my burdens in prayers in a setting dedicated to God. My Church gives me comfort that we are not alone in our faith journey. God will meet us anywhere, at home, at work, at the mountain top or in the valley. But God also meets us in our church where we can be one voice in praise and thanksgiving. Worshipping together brings a special renewal of spirit that adds to my faith journey. So each week I make the journey knowing that others like myself will join together to be blessed, to share and to comfort one another.
